PTC Releases Arbortext Advanced Print Publisher 9.0

NEEDHAM, Mass.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Dec. 13, 2005— PTC (Nasdaq: PMTC), the Product Development Company(TM), today announced that Arbortext Advanced Print Publisher 9.0 (formerly known as Advent 3B2) is now available. Arbortext Advanced Print Publisher is an automated publishing engine that produces professional, high-quality print and PDF documents with complex layout requirements.

Arbortext Advanced Print Publisher has helped customers achieve great success in areas such as technical documentation, financial reports, scientific/technical/medical (STM) journals, legislation and amendments, marketing brochures, telephone directories and product catalogs. Available in both server and desktop variants, Arbortext Advanced Print Publisher enables interactive touch-up of the automated result so that users retain complete control of the appearance of every page. Rapid, high-volume automation of the traditionally labor-intensive composition process is a key strength of the product. This product not only reduces costs and shortens schedules, but also increases flexibility by enabling reuse of the same design for multiple publications.
Highlights of Arbortext Advanced Print Publisher 9.0 include:

    --  Improved application development through three new programming
        aides including:

        --  Format Stepper, which allows the user to step through the
            format process.

        --  Tracing, which allows the user to generate reports of the
            commands being processed.

        --  Logging, which allows debugging code to be saved within
            the template and written to different locations.

    --  Table improvements that provide significantly greater
        flexibility, such as:

        --  Nesting of tables within tables.

        --  Additional keeps allow rows to be kept together and tables
            to be kept with the surrounding text.

        --  Up to five repeating headers and footers within each

    --  Productivity improvements, including:

        --  Print, save and format in a single pass, allowing print
            output to be sent to a number of output media/devices
            while formatting.

    --  Greater font flexibility through support for OpenType fonts
        that contain TrueType or PostScript outlines.

    --  Expanded support for XML-related standards including XInclude,
        inline XSLT and additional XPath functionality.

"I'm excited about this newest release of Arbortext Advanced Print Publisher software," said Ken Stearn, Technology Director at St. Ives Financial. "Version 9 further extends an already innovative product so that we can enhance our ability to deliver smart solutions to both the complex document layout and publishing problems of our customers."

"We are committed to extending the benefits of dynamic publishing to publications that warrant the professional appearance of hand-crafted layouts without the associated time and expense," said PG Bartlett, vice president product management for Arbortext solutions, PTC. "Through the simplified application development and improved composition performance of our latest release, customers can ensure a faster time to market for their publications with information that is accurate and timely."

Faster turnaround and shorter lead-time to publication are among the leading reasons why organizations need to rethink their publishing strategy. Arbortext Advanced Print Publisher provides an automated publishing approach to address these challenges, enabling organizations to reduce publishing time, save production costs and deliver better customer experiences through timely, accurate information.
